Description

Cape Naturaliste is the northernmost point of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge and separates the relatively sheltered waters of Geographe Bay from the southern Indian Ocean.

Cape Naturaliste lighthouse

Cape Naturaliste lighthouse stands on a 100m bluff overlooking Geographe Bay. Twenty metres high, the lighthouse was built in 1903, with limestone carted by bullock wagon from a quarry about 1.5 km away. The three original keepers’ quarters are still standing.

The lighthouse is now an automatic operation, with its white beam visible for 26 nautical miles (48km), flashing twice every 10 seconds.
